Arizona is nb insignificant part of the
United States; in area she is an empire.
All of the New England States, with
New York and New Jersey combined,
only equal her in square miles of terri
tory. Her agricultural and horticultural
land exceeds in acreage the entire area
of either of the great States of Indiana,
Virginia? Kentucky or Ohio.. Her citrus
fruit belt, stretching from Yuma to the
mountain ranges of Pima, a distance of
aoo miles in length by 125 miles in width,

these now desert lands, and make them
yield abundantly in, profitable crops,
there is needed.ah elaborate and perfect

Owing to a heavy matting of moss
that covers the ground of Forty Mile
creek, and in fact nearly the entire Yu
kon country, back a few feet from run--nine
water the eravel is frozen, and al
though it is rich in gold, it cannot be
worked. During the summer months
this moss becomes dry to a depth of sev
eral inches, and the miners have taken
advantage of this and are trying to burn
it offt so as to expose the gravel under
neath to tiie sun's rays. Thus the first
burning consumes it down a certain
depth, and when it is exposed to the sup
and atmosphere for a few weeks, it is
again set on fire. By this method it is
thought that in a couple of seasons a
vast amount of now frozen gravel will be
thawed out sufficient for washing. All
the gold so far taken out this season was
from bars lying along the streams, and
they could not be worked further back
than four feet, where they encountered
frozen ground, and so hard that it could
not be picked out, and powder for blast
ing is a thing that could not be obtained
in that country. It is, without the aid of
powder, an impossibility to reach the bed
rock on the deeper and richer bars. With
I so much coarse gold on the surface, ore
wonders whether or not it cannot be
shoveled out when bed-rock is or.ct
reached. Free Press.
TO ENCOURAGE IMMIGRATION.
An exchange say: "The directors of
the Southern Pacific are considering a
plan to colonize Southern California b
establishing a rate of $15 frcrr. Chicago
to San Francisco, confining it to emi
grants. The present rate of fare is $47 50,
so that the reduction would be about 6b
per cent. Between Ogden and San Fran
cisco, the Southern Pacific will be pre
vailed upon to make a nominal rate, so
that from the Missouri river the total tx-
pense ol passage would be about $5, not
including meals, The statement is made
that Senator Stanford feels that while
inviting the criticism uf that part of the
traveling public, which is to receive no
benefit from the plan, no real injustice
will be done; that those who are able 10
pay first-class fare would not ride in third
class cars, even if they were free, while
the majority of ihe so-called "emigrants"
ride in them merely because ihey tan get
a cheaper rate, and they are not privileg
ed to complain at free travel under the
Cbnditions of which it is granted. Mr.
Stanford says: "I had rather that 10,000
people come to this State at a $15 rate of
fare than that 5,000 come at $60."
The following is the acrostic that was
printed in the Chicago Daily News, a
proininenrcieveland paper, on the arri
val of President Cleveland in that city.
The initials read "Hurra for Blaine,"
'which was soon discovered by the public,
and Chicago laughed and laughed, and
the News blushed, and felt that it had
got its foot into it somehow at the mo
ment it meant to make a point on Cleve

-THE CHEAPEST YET.
The Lowest Record In Working Gold
(From the Mining and Scientific Press )
When gold can be mined in California
for 37 Jf cents a ton, and milled for 23
cents per ton, it is getting the business
down" to a very fine point, and augurs
well for the future of California quartz
mining. And this has just been ac
complished not with a smalt test run of
20 or 30 tons of ore, but with nearly 3000
It will astonish many persons to learn
that ore worth only $1 16 per ton can be
moved and worked without loss, and still
more surprise them to know that ore of
that value is paying about 56 cents per
This record was made last month at
the Spanish mine, Washington township,
Nevada county. The mine is being
worked under lease by F. W Bradley.
It has been in difficulty, and now the
lessee must take a monthly statement,
under oath, to the different creditors, to
whom certain portions of the monthly
ly profits go. The sworn statement
for the last month shows the following

These figures speak for themselves.
The ore yields a httIe,over$i.i6 per ton.
The profit is 56 cents per ton, or about
48 p:r cent of the total The milling
plant consists of four Huntington milU,
three of them five feet and one four feet
wide. After crushing the pulp passes
over silver-plated amalgtmating plates,
though most of the gold is saved in the
mills themselves. The deposit of ore is
large and easily worked. There is no
hoisting or pumping done. It is quarried
out of the side of the hill and run by
means of cars to the.mills. The deposit
is large and the ore is quartz and slate
mixed, the vein being about 100 feet wide.
No concentrating is carried on. The
facilities for mining are exceptionally
good, or no such record could be made.
The company have to pay for water
power for their mills. '
This record is one that will attract
great attention among mining men.
There are thousands of acres ot ground
in this State that will yield mure than
this mine does per ton. In other cases
the expense of mining will be gi eater,
owing to circumstances,' but with the
same class of ore the milling need not be
much advanced. It Will be noticed that
these Huntington mills have shown'great"
capacity and the advocates ,of stamps
must look to their laurels if the roller mills
continue to do such work. In 20 aays'
work they crushed 2796 tons, a mill run
of some magnitude, and the. results of
which are startling. The fact that this
work was done for any stlch figures must
greatly encouraee many-owners of low
grade properties. AVe have been gradu
ally reducing the cost of millingores in
California, but the record at the Spanish
mine last month is ahead, of anything in
that line here or elsewhere.
